    7 THINGS TO DO ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

    What You Can Do About Climate Change; Seven Simple Guidelines for Thinking About Carbon Emissions

    Josh Katz and Jennifer Daniel, December 1, 2015 (NY Times)

    “…Any long-term solution [for climate change] will require profound changes in how we generate energy…[but] there are everyday things that you can do…[A] typical household that replaces 30 percent of its calories from red meat and dairy with a combination of chicken, fish and eggs will save more carbon than a household that ate entirely local food for a full year…[Driving to work alone every day] eats up more than your entire carbon budget for the year. Taking the bus — or biking! — would sharply reduce your output…[U]p to 40 percent of American food is wasted…[Food waste adds] methane to the atmosphere as it decomposes…[and] wasted food adds to the amount of food that needs to be produced…One round-trip flight between New York and Los Angeles exhausts the year’s carbon budget but] driving can be even worse…[T]aking a train or a bus is best…Cats and dogs are not a problem…Replace your gas guzzler if you want, but don’t buy a second car…Buy less stuff, waste less stuff…[A sustainable solution will require New Energy so advocating public policies] is probably the most climate-friendly thing you can do. But cultural and behavioral change can be part of the solution…” click here for more
